Win introduced the group to the 3 types of Riesling, a very sweet, medium dry & dry.
The Rieslings are all naturally fruity wines but unfortunately the German's keep the best of the crops for themselves and therefore people think of the ghastly "blue nun" wine when they think of German wine.
I tried all 3 of the Riesling catergory's and I enjoyed the Robert Weil wine, which co-incidently our Queen does as well (yes One does) I suspect it may be the better 2003 vintage though.
I sampled various of the reds which are a bit pricey but bearing in mind the red wine producing vineyards cover a relatively small area the German's believe in quality not quantity. There again keeping the best for German consumption.
various: Shop along!
Bonn is a delight to shop in. There is a good pedestrian area and shops are close together. According to Win, they are also often cheaper than in nearby Cologne. The personal favourites so far include the huge Puppenkönig toyshop in Gangolfstrasse as well as several clothes and gift shops.
